I saw this picture on The Chloe Conspiracy and I ached. I don't watch Mad Men so it's not because of that, but I LOVE the old glamour of the 40's-early 60's. I see pictures and movies of that era and I long for the hats, gloves and the slinky dresses. I also love that the men look so dapper and well groomed, a huge comparison to today. I myself won't walk out the door without doing my make-up or hair and well, dressed up. I am often teased because I am getting "dressed up" to go to the Home Depot. I'm sorry, but I just can't do it. I see people out and about in sweats (or PJ bottoms) and slippers and I wonder why they do so. Don't they care about their appearance or the image that they are presenting?
Slumming it, for me, is wearing jeans and a t-shirt. For example, on Sunday's to watch the game I wear jeans and my jersey but with heeled boots. I feel so "under dressed". Not for the locale or occasion but for myself. Mr.Man would love it if all I ever wore was jeans, t-shirts and Chucks or Vans. But I can't, it's just not me.
Oh well, it appears I was born in the wrong era.
